About the Healthcare Career Pathways Program

Healthcare is a growing industry that offers rewarding careers and has persistent entry-level openings throughout the North Shore area, including here on Cape Ann. ACTION offers a 75-hour Home Health Aide Training Program that teaches the skills necessary to get a job as a home care aide, taking care of the elderly and disabled adults in their homes. The course includes clinical skills, life skills, resume preparation, job searches, and job placement assistance. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a Home Health Aide Certificate. Classes typically run Monday through Friday from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The program is offered free to individuals who qualify.

In 2015 ACTION began offering a new Nurse Aide Training Program, a more intensive 84-hour course that prepares students to work in healthcare facilities such as hospitals and assisted living centers. The goal is for students to prepare for and pass the Red Cross test for Nurse Aid certification. Students also have access to support services and job-readiness services. Class sizes are limited. Students must meet eligibility requirements including having a high school diploma or equivalency diploma. Preference is given to Gloucester residents.
